Shui Jiao (Chinese Pork Dumplings)
Hear us out: homemade dumplings might seem like an arduous achievement best mastered under the tutelage of a Chinese grandma (if only we could all be so lucky), but these pork dumplings are easy enough to make with naught but the recipe's guidance. (And wow, are they good!) Store-bought wonton wrappers seal up with a swipe of water and a pinch of fingers, while a supersavory pork filling provides unbelievable umami. All in all, a win.
